Quick Stats: 5'11, 172lbs, 12% body fat(with caliper)
Usually 1.5hr workouts, 30min cardio daily
Plain and simple im trying to get down to about 5-6% bf this summer and Im currently running partial keto by consuming 50g carbs, days 1-3 then carb up day on 4th and repeat. Only problem I'm having with this is losing weight kind of fast without my carbs. I don't want to lose any weight, only bf(I know sounds impossible)
I was looking for a way to maybe just have mediocre carbs daily around 125g? Wasn't sure if I would have enough energy through-out the week or if I should still have a strong carb up day once a week around 250g?
Any opinions would be appreciated! Thanks!

If you want to lose as little weight as possible to lose the bodyfat, you're going to want to eat only like 200-300 under maintenance. From there you can just figure out protein and calories to see where carbs fit in.**MISC Running Crew**

Yes I workout usually for an 1 1/4-1 1/2 hour daily and then 30 min cardio..with that routine I've been able to manage my 170+ lbs but since I changed it up to 50g carbs/125g fat/150g protein i've actually been losing weight..I was able to maintain weight when I was at 200g carbs/low fat/200g protein..

Don't worry about meal frequency, you're fine. It's not that important for us normal people.
How about fatty fish? Very good for you. Also Olive Oil and avocado are awesome. personally I prefer more fruit variety as well, and more veggies.

Some stats: So I've just about finished by bulk, going from 54kg to 60kg. I'm a 21 year old female and i'm 166cm tall.
Workouts: 3x 1.5hour weights sessions and 3x 30min HIIT and moderate cardio workouts with a day of yoga.
I have no idea how to shred properly without losing all my muscle gain! Does anyone know how many carbs, proterins and fats i should be consuming to shred down?
